Mika Mocks Woodward Over White House Threat: 'Is He Really Afraid Of A Little Aide?'

How do you go from being a gutsy hero of the MSM to a wuss in one minute? Take on a Democrat president instead of a Republican.  Using her most sarcastic scared-little-child voice, on today's Morning Joe Mika Brzezinski mocked Bob Woodward for saying the White House threatened him over his reporting on the sequester.

Mocked Mika:  "is he really afraid of a little aide who said that to him? Really?"  View the video after the jump.



Be warned journalists who might consider taking on President Obama. Mika might mock your manhood!


JOE SCARBOROUGH: I'm going to do this to make you mad [shows Mika Drudge headline about White House threatening Woodward]. Look at that.

MIKA BRZEZINSKI: Don't do that.

SCARBOROUGH: Look at that.

BRZEZINSKI: Don't do that. I love Bob and I would like him to come on the show to talk to me about this. I'm not feeling it. An aide from the White House writes an e-mail saying he's going to regret something and this is after they're screaming at each other on the phone. Can I just tell you that we do that when we're asking questions and it gets heated with the White House or with a senator or with someone, powerful CEO, and people push back on both sides. And Bob Woodward has been doing this for quite some time, writing books that White Houses have pushed back on. Is he really afraid of a little aide that said that to him? Really?

SCARBOROUGH: Really.

BRZEZINSKI: Are you kidding me? I don't get it.  We need to know more.
